This is a welcoming class for anyone who is part of the Parkinson’s community, whether you have a diagnosis or are supporting someone living with Parkinson’s. No previous dance experience is necessary, but we love to incorporate your hobbies, interests and ideas into our dances.
The class will always start seated and finish with a tea break! The class is structured to warm the body gently and to encourage a sense of flow, helped by music we enjoy. We take time to learn new routines. And we build our skills together, supporting each other. We often laugh when things go wrong and encourage a sense of play. There are always options to work in different ways as best fits our own bodies and how we are feeling.
These Dance for Parkinson’s classes are supported by Dance Base:
Dance Base is Scotland’s National Centre for Dance, and we aim to use the power of dance to improve people’s health, wellbeing, and place in society. Dance for Parkinson‘s Scotland was initiated as a partnership between Dance Base, Scottish Ballet, and Parkinson‘s UK in 2017, which saw a network of Dance for Parkinson‘s classes established across Scotland. Thanks to the ScottishPower Foundation, Dance Base is continuing to support the National Dance for Parkinson‘s Scotland network in 2023-24 through training, support, and mentoring. We are delighted to be working with Dance North to support them to pilot new Dance for Parkinson‘s classes in Moray!
